Our annual stop!

After leaving Put-In-Bay, we have stopped at this restaurant for several years. Love their Bloody Mary's, the atmosphere and the food. The Italian club on flatbread was fantastic!

845pm think usually on a Tuesday night somebody else is eating, nope but for an entire restaurant to be empty they put us in the back corner next to non vented lavatories. Assuming because they are open until 10 pm it would be an inconvenience to clean another area that has a window or see people working, instead TV on... More

We hosted a wedding rehearsal dinner here. Arrangements were easy to make and the food choices were extensive. On the day of the dinner we went in early to check out our room and set a few things up. Everything was what they said it would be and more. The food was excellent and the beer and wine selections were... More

Great place to meet friends, have lunch or dinner and relax with a drink. The food is very good. Highly recommend the perch dinner or sandwich. The best in the area. Make sure your hungry or you'll take some home.

After setting up camp at Erie Island (don't go), we ran to the local store and then grabbed dinner at Waldo. The server was excellent and everyone's food was good. The only drawback was the was a local "band" playing golden oldies and it got some of the older bar patrons excited. Other than that, a great place to grab... More

Service was good but totally disappointed with the food. Worst New York strip I've ever had; it was the type of steak one might expect to get at a Waffle House or any restaurant that doesn't normally sell steaks. My wife had the ribs and they were tough and full of gristle. And if that wasn't bad enough, our bread... More

I've just read some low reviews but have to say we have had some wonderful meals. We enjoy sitting at the bar and the very tall waiter is excellent. Ribs are delicious which is my husbands favorite. Love the salads that come with the meals. Nice dark greens with olives and shavings of fresh Parmeshan cheese. Prices are a little... More

Took several business associates here for dinner and all but one in our group of 6 ordered steak and everyone was very pleased. Also try the jalapeno/mango salad dressing!
